I'm tweaking Flight Simulator 2004, and I have an add-on program that has thoroughly uninstalled, but it's entry still remains on the remove/change program page. How can I get rid of it for good?

Are you referring to the Programs and features in the control panel?

If you click the option in the list and the program is already gone from the computer, Windows 7 will ask if you want to remove that entry, choose yes.

It will safely remove a reference to the program from your windows registry.

At least that is what happens on my version of Windows 7 Home Edition.

If I misunderstood your question, please define what you mean by remove/change.

Yes, that's what I was referring to, but no, it didn't work. I click on it, and the wizard symbol momentarily appears in the task bar at the bottom, but fades, leaving the entry.

Okay here's than easy way to get rid of it without your having to edit your registry.

Please download Revo uninstaller and run the program, when its done scanning it should make mention of that entry and offer to remove it.
